Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has insisted that fellow Spaniard Pedro will be a hero at Stamford Bridge before too long.
The winger took little time to settle in the Premier League after scoring and putting on an assist in the 3-2 win over West Brom on Sunday.
Given that the 28-year-old only had a couple of training sessions with his teammates, it made it all the more impressive and Azpilicueta has tipped him for big things.
“He has trained for one week, he played his first game, he is discovering the Premier League and I’m sure he will get better,” he said, according to Sky Sports.
“I know him very well and he fits into the team very well. I know his ambition, he is hungry to help the team, win trophies and I know the way he started the first game is amazing.”
After spending years at Barcelona, Pedro’s impact was felt immediately as Cesc Fabregas explained how his compatriot brings something different to the team compared to others in the squad.
While Man United may or may not have been interested, Louis Van Gaal will certainly be looking on and bemoaning their inability to sign him or the missed opportunity to do so having been linked with a move all summer.
